"Demolition of the hospital's old buildings was...begun and was completed by February, 1937. Materials from these old buildings were "salvaged and stored away for possible future use." -- See: "The rise of the "new" Charity," in John Salvaggio, New Orleans' Charity Hospital, a story of physicians, politics, and poverty, 1992.
